WOOOOO!!! Granter-of-all-wishes Bryan Fuller has heard us, and added Gillian Anderson to the American Gods cast! And She’ll be playing Media, because sometimes in this life things get to be perfect. Variety reported the news, saying:
Anderson will play Media, the mouthpiece for the New Gods, functioning as their public face and sales representative, by taking the form of various iconic celebrities. She lives off the attention and worship that people give to screens — to their laptops, their TVs, to their iPhones in their hands while they watch their TVs. Ever the perky spokesperson, and always in control, she spins stories in whatever direction best suits her.
O, happiness! O Hannibal reunion!
American Gods will come to Starz not nearly soon enough, with Ricky Whittle as Shadow and Ian McShane as Mr. Wednesday. We can’t wait.
